Video: Obama loves 'the man in the mirror,' Priebus says

(CNN) - Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus argued Friday the president was more focused on "the man in the mirror" than holding true to his campaign pledges.

"My point is he's a person in love with the sound of his own voice. He loves giving speeches, but he doesn't love following through on his promises," Priebus said on CNN's "The Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer."

    It's obvious of the DERMOS making good speech presentations but without fulfilling most of their promises. Justifies a man by his deals and NOT by his words! I hope voters tend to be smart this time around in this choice come NOV 2012.

    …says a guy where neither he nor his GOP/TP party has done anything that served the American people in the last 10 years! But, I think the envy is showing because the President is smart and a class act that works well for 99% of the people!

    This is simply Priebus's opinion. Not even newsworthy despite his role in the Republican party. Maybe Priebus would be willing to speak about his party's role in President Obama's inability to follow through on his promises? Maybe he would like President Obama to talk about why he is unable to deliver on his promises, i.e. 100% obstructionism from the House. Pretty disingenuous Reince. And your party's plan is to do what? We do not fully know because, as their leader, you are clearly incapable of driving this process and would rather spend your time behaving like a jealous middle schooler. Please come back when you have something of substance to say.

    Charles Krauthammer put it best:
    I think there is an appalling double standard here. It’s okay for the Washington Post to run a five thousand word front page story on a prank that Romney, at the age of 15, committed. And yet it’s somehow illegitimate, the low road or whatever, for people to bring up the fact that the adult Obama had a 20-year relationship with a racist anti-American preacher whom he considered, spoke about, wrote about as his mentor and spiritual advisor. That is a double standard unlike any I’ve ever seen.
